insight from tamerlan's wife. seen over the weekend leaving the family apartment. a rhode island native, she converted to islam and changed her name from katherine to karina. her family lawyer said monday, she was shocked to learn of her husband's role and had no idea until the fbi first released those surveillance pictures of him and named him a suspect. in fact, the lawyer says, the wife doesn't speak any russian and didn't really know what was going on. as to the younger brother's claims and statements to the fbi, investigators don't necessarily take at face value all that he has said. he has every reason to try to minimize his own role as the investigation into possible ties to overseas groups in russia remains a central focus of the case, george. >> brian, talk about living double-lives. we know that the younger brother was out partying on wednesday night. now we have learned more about where the older brother, tamerlan, was the day before the shootout. >> reporter: exactly. on that thursday, the day the fbi released his surveillance photo, he was at home taking care of his infant
: the about how the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev, this issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. guest: we will learn more about this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. if information had come out through the fbi investiga
to the one in the surveillance photos he was allegedly wearing. investigators also want to question tamerlan tsarnaev's wife. the couple initially met at a nightclub. she later converted to islam, dropped out of college and had a child with him. her attorney has said that she had no suspicions that her husband might be plotting an attack. hundreds of people stood in silence at copley square at 2:50 p.m. one week after the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. >>> it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more rom neprominent n the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred with republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill, offer an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly to those who are pointing to what happened, the terrib
. senator grassley actually rought this up, again, how tightened up security. 's clear that tamerlan tsarnaev, they had no record of him going to russia or coming back because his name was misspelled. by a place where we don't have regulations, a foreign airline. under our bill, everything would have to be pass -- passport or machine-read that so type of mistake could not occur. if our bill were law, isn't it a pretty safe guess that the authorities would have known that tsarnaev went to russia and came back? >> if i might, there are redundancies now in the system so there was a ping on the outbound to customs. this is my understanding, this has been kind of changing picture, but even regardless of that, anything that makes a requirement for machine-readable gets manual inputting out of the system, imprombings security. >> all right. ok. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you. >> thank you. it was a revelation to go down on the border. we actually watched and illegal border crossing while we were there. >> and an apprehension. >> as you hear. and an apprehension. a quick one, too. >>
